Devro closed after caustic leak

BATHURST’S Devro plant has been closed following a caustic leak into the Bathurst Regional Council waste water system.

The Western Advocate understands a ruptured pipe is to blame for the leak.

Devro has been shut until the issue can be fully rectified.

More information to come. Both council and Devro have been contacted for comment.

Devro is an international operation making sausage skins from collagen, a protein found in animal connective tissue.
